Dysgraphia: 10 Tips For Helping: #5 Copying From the Board

5. Decrease copying: Copying from the board: Copying requires looking up, remembering what you want to copy, looking down at the page and writing what you remember (hopefully).  Then you must look back up again and repeat the effort.  For those children who are dysgraphic and have difficulties focusing as well, copying from the board may be very tedious!!!

  • Ask the teacher to have the work on a paper to be placed on the desk for copying. 
  • If copying is for “copying sake”, why increase the writing frustration.  Just provide a copy of the work whenever possible.
